It appears that the lockout hasn't softened Tim Thomas' stance on taking a break from the game.

TSN's Bob McKenzie does say that the door has been left open for him to change his mind. Thomas' decision comes at an odd time in many ways, not the least of which is the fact that he's an aging goalie in the last season of a lucrative contract. If he snapped out of it, he could be a solid trade target for teams with short-term interests.
